Better hope it never stops working.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
30 December 2015
  • Summary: I have had a bad experience with ASUS customer Support. I have a very expensive Asus Tablet that is two years old and out of warranty and that has a failed Motherboard. The tablet is in perfect condition and never been abused, it is just a bad Asus component.

Utterly Disappointed

David M., Newegg
14 August 2014
  • Summary: One other thought: The battery life initially advertised with this really was optimistic. Fortunately, we have a power convertor to allow us to use this in the car without worrying about battery life.
  • Pros: Windows 7 capability in a slate form. Overall, if this had worked reliably, it would have been a GREAT product. When it worked, it worked as intended, allowing us to get work done while traveling.
  • Cons: This device has been unreliable from the start. Initial setup was tedious. It took many hours to get all of the Windows updates installed. But the bigger problem is that for the past couple of weeks (just when we need it most as school is restarting) it has become unusable. The screen backlight g...

Not mad...just disappointed

Anthony R., Newegg
12 June 2012
  • Summary: I used to be a HUGE Asus fanboy, but their support has gone in the toilet. I've contacted them 3 times (which could either indicate quality issues or simply a lemon). Once they told me I had to ship back my entire laptop for a power supply that went bad (and confirmed with a known working one).
  • Pros: Nice screen, Great i5 processor.
  • Cons: One memory slot, Poor quality Power Supply and Keyboard, Horrific support.

GARBAGE - Poorly Designed, Constructed, and Supported

Computer Guy, Amazon
19 March 2012
  • Summary: GARBAGE - Poorly Designed, Constructed, and Supported. Just under a year of ownership it has been returned twice for repairs and has failed again. The display and thermal connectors fall out of their sockets under normal use and the OEM power supplies (several of these have also failed) introduce...

Complete waste of money!

VG2013, Amazon
19 March 2012
  • Summary: I purchased two of these slates for my kids and have had problems with them from day one. Now six months later, one of them has completely died on me. The unit would start up but the screen was black. Tried looking at numerous forums but nothing simple came up.

Great computer but never buy it second hand.

19 March 2012
  • Summary: The pc itself is fantastic, the buyer that I bought from however had opened the case and damaged the hardware. I found this out after sending it in for support and hearing that my warranty was void on a new item.

Dark screen out of the box

engrforever, Amazon
19 March 2012
  • Summary: I just got my unit delivered, powered it ON and it looks like the display is dead. When I contacted ASUS for support, they have asked me to let the device charge for 8 hours. They also asked me to try connecting to an external monitor, but they failed to realize, there are no cables in the box to...

Do Not Buy ASUS Products

P. Gibbs, Amazon
19 March 2012
  • Summary: Have one of these and the hard drive crashed within 2 months. ASUS cutomer service is just about non existant they do not reply to any form of communication. I have to figure out a way to get this thing fixed even though it is under warranty I will have to pay.

Dreadful

Shuji Yoshida, Amazon
19 December 2011
  • Summary: I am a Japanese citizen and a science professor. Every December I do lots of shopping in the US, many of which are via Amazon USA, and this year I visited the US (San Francisco) from Dec. 2 to Dec. 11. I ordered this product to Amazon on Dec 2, 2011, and it was delivered to my hotel on Dec. 5.
